Yesterday we found the cutest little pub on the canal.
How Pretty Is this view!
Back in the day, this live wire place called Soho used to be my stomping ground. Since then I’ve moved to Stockholm, Los Angeles, the British countryside, Nice and Antibes in France.. phew! Now I’m back in London with a new outlook on life, new stomping grounds and with a little boy at my side. Soho belongs to my past!! Walking around the narrow maze like streets, this London village hasn’t changed much really. I instantly recognise the creative bohemian atmosphere that at one time shared the streets with businesses less savoury. Most of the cafes, and shops I used to go to have now gone, but nonetheless Soho is filled with lingering memories of my teenage years.
Yesterday I was invited to A London Fashion Week event, and walked through Soho on the way reliving memories. The invitation was a 21 Buttons x TBP Hangout in Covent Garden. Let’s just say it was a room full of cocktails, snacks, goodie bags, and Bloggers! I met many industry people and made new friends. A fun afternoon.
I decided last minute to wear this vintage pink turtleneck top I picked up at Traid , Notting Hill on sale for a ridiculous £2. I just love the pop of pink color. So on trend.
Sometimes the past brings with it good things. Memories, warm thoughts, a reflection as to who you are now in relation to the past, and oh … a vintage pink turtleneck!
September is finally here, bringing with it a change of routine. Mind you I’m not quite ready to ditch the whites just yet (A bit of a rebel I admit) I’m loving the sharp contrast of wearing white against the backdrop of Fall. It’s an oxymoron isnt it? They say you shouldn’t wear white after Labour Day in America, however a little bit of individuality is my signature. Who’s with me?! 😉
Did you notice my earrings? They add just the right amount of sparkle to my look, and they take it up a notch to turn this outfit from day to chic. I was super excited to receive these gorgeous gold swagy hoops from Uno De50 as part of a collab. Im looking forward to wearing these with so many of my next seasons outfits!

Its August, and I’m sure we’ve only had 2 weeks of summer?! So with Autumn around the corner along with these chilly mornings and evenings, I feel this is the best way to transition your Summer outfit into fall. I got this amazing jacket from Joes Jeans, which is an American company. They recently teamed up with Taylor Hill for an awesome collab (here). This jacket was one of the items I adored from the collaboration, and couldnt wait for it to arrive in the post!
I teamed this jacket ‘must have’ with my “Mon Cheri” slogan sweatshirt from Joanie. I have a feeling you’re going to be seeing a lot of this sweatshirt on me, with no apologies!! It’s the softest coziest sweatshirt EVER, and the cute slogan makes it possible to pair with most things. I’m even wearing it as I type this post (and extremly tempted to sleep in it ) but I wont, well….maybe?
To complete the look grab your favorite beret, boots, red lipstick and Voila ! We are as they say ‘transitioning’! Bring on Autumn, or an Indian Summer and I’m totally okay with going back to Summer dresses. What about you?!
